for president. the candidates are giving us a preview of their debate strategies now. president obama left a swanky resort where he is doing debate prep to deliver pizzas to volunteers in nevada. it was a break from what we hear he is working on including shortening and sharpening his answers. not his idea of a good time. >> it was very nice. basically, they are keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> mitt romney rallied in a crowd in denver. even though he's been practicing zingers, he tried to play down the need for a victory. >> people want to know who is going to win, who is going to score the punches and who is going to make the biggest difference in the arguments they make and there's going to be all the scoring of winning and losing. in my view it's not the winning and losing, the people themselves, it's something bigger than that. these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america we would choose. >> i want to bring in john harwood and e.j. deion, author of "our divided political heart." thank you f
there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of
